The Majestic Hotel has one of the most luxurious and glamorous rooftop bars in Barcelona where people chill out on sofas, enjoy drinking cool cocktails and relax around the pool for a unforgettable evening. However, this place is considered as one of the rooftop bars in Barcelona for the rich and famous. Its guests enjoy the wonderful views over the city, Montjuic and the Sagrada Familia. But you don’t have to be a guest to participate so check it out!
One of the rooftop bars in Barcelona where the views of the city are admittedly a little grey, focusing on the rooftops of the old town, but get better at night when the lights come on at night and the view stretches from the sea front towers to the Sagrada Familia. You have laid back sofas and seating along the length of the bar area that wraps around 3 sides of the roof of the H10 Montcada. This place is a fabulous place to chill out and taste some tapas from the menu.
One of the rooftop bars in Barcelona which is quiet new. This place has amazing views over Gaudi’s Casa Mila and Sagrada Familia, low, moody lighting and occasional live music performances combine to make the Condes de Barcelona one of the best rooftop bars in Barcelona. The place is located on Passeig de Gracia and Carrer Mallorca and is easy to get to with the metro and the bus.
Considered as one of the best rooftop bars in Barcelona with possibly the most spectacular deck in the city centre, with its infinity pool and close-up views of Barcelona’s rooftops. The prices here are relatively cheap compared to other rooftop bars in Barcelona.
Just around the corner from the previously mentioned Majestic hotel, the Claris is one of the rooftop bars in Barcelona, with an equally stunning terrace. Unlike most rooftop bars in Barcelona, Hotel Claris has a top restaurant as well. It has a little more style than for example the laid back Majestic hotel. The views from the terrace are not quite as inspiring as the other rooftop bars in Barcelona, but the high class feel and the excellent service from the friendly and knowledgeable waiting staff make up for this.
The Pulitzer Hotel has one of the most relaxing rooftop bars in Barcelona to unwind with a nice drink while listening to great music under the night sky. The rooftop is close to Plaza Catalunya which means that it’s not far to get to no matter where you are in the city. This place is a bit on the expensive side when it comes to food and drinks, but you will forget all that while you are enjoying the cool and relaxed ambience of the roof terrace which totally makes it up for it.

Hotel Villa Emilia which is located in the Eixample Esquerra has one of the most charming rooftop bars in Barcelona. Small and an intimate atmosphere, there are live music sessions on certain days and BBQ if you feel hungry.
Located on the hill of Tibidabo and is one of the rooftop bars in Barcelona that completely dominates the rest of the rooftop bars in the city.
